Ingeborg Bo-Hansen was born November 26, 1926 in Trondheim, Norway. At 24 years old she bravely immigrated alone to Chicago to reside with her American aunt and uncle. In 1961 she met her loving husband, Jørgen Bo-Hansen, and began raising a family. She embraced her Norwegian heritage and loved to share her traditions to family and friends. Ingeborg enjoyed cooking, arts & crafts, gardening, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Ingeborg is survived by her daughter, Ann Marie (Charlie) Tsatsos; son, Erik (Melissa) Bo-Hansen; and grandchildren, Michelle (Ben) Modde & George Tsatsos and Molly, Carly & Gunnar Bo-Hansen.
She is preceded in death by her husband Jørgen Bo-Hansen. She also leaves behind many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.

A great lady and true friend. We will miss her.
My memory of Ingeborg goes back to 1952 when I accompanied my parents, Anita and Forrest Clausen and my aunt, Aunt Anna (Anderson) to Union Station where we were going to pick up my cousin from Norway. She came down the isle and it was a very exciting and happy time to meet a relative from another country and she presented me with a small Norwegian pin which I have always treasured. She was very friendly and my mother could not believe she was Norwegian because she found my father’s relatives to be rather dour, and here was this live wire! Anyway, I have always treasured my cousin and she was always lovely, happy and just someone you looked forward to being with. I will always love her.
